The Story of Granville Christian Academy
In 1997, our founder, Cathy Pound, responded to a growing demand for private Christian education in Licking County, Ohio. What started as a small homeschool program for Spring Hills Baptist Church, pastored by Cathy’s husband Jeff, became Grace Haven Academy. Because of our growth, in 2014, we became our own nonprofit entity separate from the church and re-named to Granville Christian Academy, Licking County’s best kept secret. From the beginning, our purpose has been to partner with parents and local churches to develop life-long spiritual leaders for Christ. From our first homeschoolers to our more than 200 students today, each child that passes through our doors is here for God’s purposes. Together, they join a community of staff, teachers, parents, and alumni as part of the bigger story God is authoring through Granville Christian Academy.
The mission of Granville Christian Academy is to partner with Christian families and local churches by creating a Christ-centered, nurturing environment with Biblically based academic excellence and character development, resulting in students who are becoming Christ-like and impacting their culture through servant leadership.
